Re: Turbodudey/quicksilvr MegaSquirt & Turbo Build

Holy cow that looks amazing! Car tuned yet? Josh just ordered some new smaller injectors. The 80# units that were in there couldn't run a small enough pulse width to have a good idle AFR. Idle itself was very smooth...but like 10.5 AFR. Just a tad rich. lol So, he's popping the new injectors in, an...

Oh man. That really sucks. Hopefully the neck injury/insurance stuff all turned out ok.

Just to RIP this thread...this is how the car looked when I sold it. The girl that bought it lasted about a year before she totaled it.

Re: Staying alive, stayin' alive....ah ah ah

What are the specs on it? Turbo 2.0 or SRT swap? Built 2.0 with a 20g and full MS. We are getting ready to go full on MS3 Pro with coil on plug ignition. We have all the parts, just haven't installed. The clutch is still an issue, but if it would hold, I'd love to turn the boost up to 20 and see wh...

Re: Staying alive, stayin' alive....ah ah ah

Dave, you and your dad should come to Carlisle this year :D Man, I know. The problem keeps being that our family vacation time has to fall on basically the same week/weekend as Carlisle. And we've been visiting my mom and staying at the beach on the shore in New Jersey every year. If dad had the ti...

Hey, the car won't make it out this year, but I'm going to stop in and say hi...timing of family vacation out to PA to visit my mom happens to be the same as the show again this year.

Yes, I do like the S-tech springs, but by the time you buy springs and 4 new struts, you've spent the same or more than the Ultimo's. I think the Racelands are the way to go. I'm also thinking that 205/45's will look pretty nice if I lower the car down on them. Sure my 75mph highway rpm will be sky ...

The big question: 205/45r16 or 205/50r16? The 45's are shorter than stock and the 50's are taller. The perfect match is 215/45r16....but there are no tires available in that size. I'm looking at the Direzza DZ102 as my first choice right now.

It's a regular AutoZone battery....I got the picture to post. I may try spraying the top with black plastidip....that way if it doesn't like it, I can peel it off. I do have an extra white face cluster, but I don't want to swap the whole thing. The tach needle just doesn't swing smoothly....it's acc...

The left outer tie rod end is loosey Goosey, I picked up a new one today. I'm thinking about selling the tires on eBay while they are still thick, and getting some Dunlop Direzza DZ102's, in 205/50. Then I can lower it on Raceland's. It drives great other than the tie rod and the intake actuator not...

205/40R17's are tiny. Unless you lower it a LOT, they'll look kind of funny. 205/45, 215/40 and 215/45 are all better choices. Plus those sizes will all ride and drive better. :thumbup:
